Cookbook Countdown: 5 Days to Go: Croquettes

Posted by: Lindsay S. Nixon |

They're kind of like meatballs, but they don't taste beefy. They're awesome with pasta...or slapped into a bun for a tasty meatball sub... yet they have the consistency of a croquette---one that's not deep fried, anyway; so I'm still not going to call them meatballs. lol!

Anyway, point is, they're really tasty... far too tasty for their own good. As I was preparing to go on vacation last week, I was searching for recipes in the cookbook that use odds and ends -- all my crummy leftovers -- so I could clean out my fridge. Thankfully, this is one of those recipes. It calls for beans, carrots, zucchini and leftover quinoa, to name a few ingredients. The rest is pretty much spicing and a bit of flour...

My MIL asked if you could make a "meatloaf" instead of "balls" and my first reaction was, "why didn't I think of that?" I think this recipe could make one awesome "meatloaf"! I'm totally going to try that soon...

In the meantime, get ready for your newly beloved "kitchen sink" recipe --- it's a great fall back when you've got nothing but leftover random ingredients! and it's okay to call them meatballs, too.
